About this book
In this collection of trenchant essays and interviews, István Mészáros, the world’s preeminent Marxist philosopher and winner of the Libertador Award for Critical Thought (the Bolivar Prize) for 2008, lays bare the exploitative structure of modern capitalism. He argues with great power that the world’s economies are on a social and ecological precipice, and that unless we take decisive action to radically transform our societies we will find ourselves thrust headfirst into barbarism and environmental catastrophe.
István Mészáros left his native Hungary after
the Soviet invasion of 1956. He is professor emeritus at the University
of Sussex, where he held the Chair of Philosophy for fifteen years.
Mészáros is author of The Challenge and Burden of Historical Time,
Beyond Capital, The Power of Ideology, The Work of Sartre, and Marx’s
Theory of Alienation.
